Okay, so first off, Im new to this, and perhaps this is a noob question - if it is a simple direct to appropriate thread would be sufficient.
Basically I bought a 2000 Wrangler Sport, 4.0 auto about a month and a half ago. It has 32x11.5 mud terrain tires on it, and a small lift (i think?). I have a winch on order, should get mounted this week or next. It has the stock Dana 30 front axle and Dana 35 rear axle.
A few weeks back, I got stuck in a snowdrift at dark am - ended up digging myself out. Basically lots of lessons learned, but it got me thinking about maybe adding a locking differential to one or both axles. Would this be a reasonable addition?
One thing that I think should be noted, I foresee an urge for larger still tires at some point - having said that, should I look at stronger axles (Dana 44?) for future larger tires before adding the differentials? My understanding is that differentials would not be interchangeable between the 35 and 44 axles.
Most of my offroading at this time is done just messing around, at least until I find a 4wd/jeep club in my area, after which I would love to do trail rides and whatnot.
Again, Im a noob, go easy on me
